I know this question has probably been asked before but I didn’t feel like searching tons of pages to find it. And I hope this is on the right board.
My average cycle is now 26 days….last few months have been 24, 27, 27, and 25. So according to the normal 26 days, I was due for AF yesterday. I took a HPT this morning and like always…BFN!
Any of you bees that know me, know that I’ve been TTC for a long time. And b/c of this, I’m pretty in tune with my body. I haven’t had the normal post-O symptoms I normally have (I actually quit doing the OPK tests this month and I was sick with a cold around O time so I have no idea how many DPO I am.)
However this month, I’ve had HORRIBLE acne (it’s just starting to clear up) and Darling Husband and I have been fighting like cats and dogs for the past 5 days which always ends in me crying hysterically (I’m not a cryer btw.)
I can’t sleep and I’m not really tired…which I always know AF is coming b/c I take a nap each of the 2 days before she comes. Boobs normally swell and get “full” and hurt including my nipples but nothing this time….I did start cramping 2 days ago and really really thought I’d start the next day. That same morning, I had some weird yellow snot-looking CM and I thought “hmmm, this is weird…a new AF symptom?” And Too Much Information, but I’ve had an abundance of CM for the past 2.5 weeks.
Maybe I’m posting this b/c I know that as soon as I do AF will show up! As much as we are TTC, I don’t always take HPTs b/c I’m pretty regular. But…when did you get your first BFP? I “usually” try to wait until the day AF is supposed to show up and then test and most every woman I know that’s been recently pregnant told me they got their BFP the day AF was due…not before and not after.
